reid and move on to john boehner. [video clip] >> they are tired of partisan gridlock. i have one goal, to be obama. obama was reelected overwhelmingly. republicans want us to work together. democrats want us to work together. they want to reach a balanced approach to everything, but especially the situation we have with the huge deficit. taxes are a part of that. >> the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama, and every elected a republican majority. if there was a mandate, it is a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges we all face as a nation. my message today is not one of confrontation, but one of conviction. mr. president, this is your moment. we are ready to be led. not as democrats or republicans, but as americans. we want you to lead as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. let's challenge ourselves to find the common ground that has eluded us. let's do the right thing together for our country. host: ron, you are up first. what was the message to washington? caller: i really think co
and speaker john boehner drawing different lines in the sand. will they break the stalemate? and if they don't -- that's coming up. >> greta: late today, david petraeus abruptly resigning after admitting to an extra-marital affair with his biographer. that's bad. but it gets worse. the resignation just days before general petraeus was set to testify at congressional hearings. coincidence? >> good evening, how are you? >> greta: i'm very well. congress pan, the affair, i mean, for the most part, i am trying to separate this out. it is a matter for general petraeus and his wife. but there is -- there is some parts of it that do have an implication. one is whether or not it's a security breach and that it should have been picked up and turned over to the house intel commits and whether or not that could be used as blackmail against him. your thought, sir? >> well, even someone as lowly as an assistant u.s. attorney has to undergo a background check with very invasive questions and you are expected to tell the truth and you are asked under penalty of perjury. so you can increase that expoinentia
'am. >> greta: straight ahead, president obama versus the speaker of the house, john boehner, digging in their heels on avoiding the fiscal cliff. time is running out. the latest is next. another bush family member is getting ready to run for political office. which one is it? start guessing. that's coming up. ♪ [ male announcer ] how could switchgrass in argentina, change engineering in dubai, aluminum production in south africa, and the aerospace industry in the u.s.? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t. rowe price. invest with confidence. request a prospectus or summary prospectus with investment information, risks, fees and expenses to read and consider carefully before investing. >> well, it didn't take long, talk of compromise, post postelection, turning into stalemate. john boehner and barack obama not budging as we rapidly approach the fiscal cliff. >> 2013 should be the year we begin to solve our debt through tax reform and entitlement reform. i a
can do, just as john boehner and democratic leadership are limited by the broader environment. >> i am sensitive to this -- everyone in this room should read the fourth volume on lyndon johnson. it is available on cd's. it is 26 cd's long. that is a drive from washington d.c. to tampa, florida, where they had the republican convention, to charlotte, fort bragg, back to charlotte, washington. that is 26 cd's. [laughter] but i have this image of lyndon johnson spinning in his grave at the idea that there is the president of the united states that has minimal interaction of congress, especially some of his own party. let's just forget republicans and tea party people. forget them. just in his own party, wander around the hill, as all of you do all the time, and ask democratic members of congress, how much personal interaction do you have with the president? i hate giving political credit for anything, but they have that piece back in may that pointed out that the president, as of may, had not had a single conversation this year with the their kent conrad, chairman of the senate budget com
to what the president said today and what speaker john boehner said last week. listen to this. >> you've said that the wealthiest must pay more. would closing loopholes instead of raising rates for them sty y satisfy you? >> i think there are loopholes that should be closed and we should look at how we can make the process of deductions, the filing process easier, simpler, but when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly, it couldn't even pass the house. >> well, it feels like a dÉjÀ vu all over again. somebody is going to have to blink or we go over the fiscal cliff. my next guest knows all about fiscal cliff uncertainty and its effect on the individual investor. walter bettinger is ceo of charles schwab. the market certainly feels pessimistic. we are looking at another 200-point decline today. the market is down 5% since the president was re-elected. what are you hearing from clients? >> clients are really concerned. there is pessimism among investors. there's grea
, john boehner making public comments and neither one sounding like a compromise is anywhere -- >> well, the tone is certainly nicer than what we've heard, right? the president saying i'm not wedded to any one aspect of this. i'm open to compromise and new ideas. what i heard the president say and talking to white house officials, he certainly feels like this election gave him a victory on his point of view about taxes. he wants wealthier americans to pay more. he wants that balanced approached and he wants to drive a hard bargain on that piece of it. i would look for this to happen in some stages. avoid going off that fiscal cliff and spending cuts and tax increases by the end of the year and maybe take an initial stab at tax reform and maybe this happens in bits and pieces. >> talk to senator schumer and coburn and reaction to the petraeus resignation and more on what the republican party does in the future now after this loss. >> david gregory of "meet the press" thank you. >> it airs at 10:30 sunday morning here on nbc 4. >>> leon panetta says the military did all it could to respon
there was john boehner drawing the line not against tax increases, but increases in tax rates. >> listen, the problem with raising tax rates on the wealthiest americans is that more than half of them are small business owners. we know from ernst & young 700,000 jobs would be destroyed. we also know that it would slow down our economy. >> president obama from his part came into the east room. he also drew a line, but the line he drew was not insisting on higher tax rates but on higher tax revenues. >>> i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges, but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> so, larry, balance is the key for president obama, not necessarily increases in tax rates. signs of conciliation on both sides and late this afternoon the bipartisan policy center which has been pushing for a simpson bowles-type solution said they were encouraged by the flexibility shown on both side says. john harwood, appreciate it and let's get reaction, and we have republican whip senator joh
. i think you heard john boehner say that. we've had votes in the senate where we've gotten rid of tax credits. i think that's a given. >> we need the republicans to do in 2012 what we did in 2010. we hear the mandate continue to cut spending, but they have to hear the than date real revenues not like dynamic scoring. >> and here's what happens if no agreement is reached before january 1st.bush tax rates expire. emergency unemployment benefits will end. the 2011 payroll tax holiday expires. and $984 billion in cuts will be triggered. joining me now, andy sullivan and sher a tupletts. what do you expect to come out of the meeting friday and will any real progress made? >> oh, no, but i think the optics will be important. there will beside by side getting their picture taken and i think this will reassure voters and most importantly investors that they are serious about the problem and they want t to get something done before the end of the year. they've pretty much gotten a free ride from the markets. everybody knew this was coming up, but interest rates have remained low and the stock
cuts on those who make under $250,000 and it's on speaker john boehner at this point to simply pass the senate bill and if nothing is done it's on speaker john boehner not on the president, whether or not the tax cuts expire on january 1. >> but at the end of the day, it will be the american people that are hurt. yes, there is a bill in the senate, and yes, boehner could pass it, but he says that he does not want to raise taxes and the congressional budget office says, kelly, if we do what the republicans want us to do it will increase economic growth by 1.5%. if we do what president obama wants us to do and what she just mentioned, it would raise economic growth by 1.25%, so it's more than just tax cuts, it's more than just tax increases, we have to actually reform entitlement programs. there's a lot that needs to be done before january 1st. >> kelly: what say you about this? is angela right, 1.5%, i understand it could be as high as 1.7% if they find agreement. >> number one thing we need to focus on, while the country elected the same congress and everyone is taking their old pos
is there to do? the signals from john boehner, the speaker of the house, are that he's got some more leverage with his republican caucus than he had back in the day, and that there is talk of coming up with more revenue. maybe not calling it a tax increase, not a rate increase, but finding some way to raise some more money. >> right. you know, andrea, i hate to sound an optimistic note when it comes to politics, but i do think the signals coming out of john boehner's sort of world, and out of president obama's statement last week is that there can be some common ground here, that president obama, i think, clearly has some leverage due to what happened in the, in his own race, as well as at the senate level. so i think he has that. and then john boehner, i think a little bit more questionable in how much more leverage he has within his own caucus, but we shall see. if both of them can sort of say, look, let's do this, this is important to the country, let's move on, we can disagree about lots of other things, but we're going to compromise and move forward. whether that compromise is not raisin
twice what they negotiated with john boehner unsuccessfully over a year ago. are you willing to give the government $1.6 trillion of private money, and if you did, what in the hell would they do with it? that's the part i don't get. what would they do with all that money? >> not only that, but let me ask america this. where do you have the money to give to the government? if you want to tax the wealthy, then you tax money that goes to investment in businesses, in venture capital, investments that the wealthy take for the middle class. this government and this administration had a choice to make after the election. do you run center, play a clinton move or do you run hard left? we are seeing the obama that i predicted is going to run hard left. he wants to tax the wealthy. by the way, how do you compromise by first telling someone that you need to come to my position, then give me something else and maybe i'll compromise with you? barack obama is not interested in compromise. keith, you just contradicted yourselves. >> mitch mcconnell has been the guy out there saying it, and all repu
the pipeline. mapped door budget cuts kick in in 54 days. house speaker john boehner says it is time for the president to lead. here he is is talking about that. >> mr. president, this is your moment. we're ready to be lead, not as democrats or republicans but americans. we want you to lead, not as a liberal or conservative but as president of the united states of america. we want you to succeed. bill: stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company", fox business network. the issues on the table are the same issues as monday. we want you to succeed by the way. what did you hear or what are you hearing based on the statements out of the washington now? >> three statements to listen to very carefully. speaker boehner, senate majority leader harry reid, and the big union boss, richard trumka. if you add them all together, tell you exactly what they said in a moment, add them all together the outlines of a deal would look like this. this is on the fiscal cliff. the outlines would possibly look like this. raise taxes, certainly raise tax revenues right now, beginning next year. promise to cut
alone. and election results are barely dry and john boehner and president obama buting heads. key disagreements are whether taxes should be raised on wealthy americans. neither seem willing to compromise on that. >> and a pair of college basketball was cancelled because the floor was not in ship shop. florida left georgia in half time. there was so much condeization on the floor the game was cancelled. >> and over the next few weeks, top republicans are taking a closer look at what went wrong in the election cycle and how to fix it they are talking to donors and house majority leader john boehner said there is no tea party to speak of anymore. does the republican party need to change the image joining us now is shawn and amy. welcome to the woth of - both of you. i know it is it a disappointing week that you are reacting tompt there is it a lot of soul senching going on saying that the republican party need toz get a grip and take a look at where it missed the mark in the past election, shawn, a lot of the folks are upset that the republican party did not factor in the real vibe w
to tackle the impending fiscal cliff but the president and the speaker of the house john boehner each drawing lines that they say they will not cross. the major hurdles, that threat to send the economy into a tailspin, that's coming up next. >>> plus a nascar race turning into a full-scale brawl. look at this. mayhem breaking out of the everybody going at it. we'll tell you what set it off. after this. ve lately. but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. jenna: well come back, everyone. now let's return to the economy. the president and house speaker john boehner are suggesting they are willing to compromise to prevent our economy from going over that so-called fiscal cliff but both sides are digging in their heels whether or not to race tax rates for the wealthy. rich edson of the fox business network watching
leader john boehner said there is no tea party to speak of anymore. does the republican party need to change the image joining us now is shawn and amy. welcome to the woth of - both of you. i know it is it a disappointing week that you are reacting tompt there is it a lot of soul senching going on saying that the republican party need toz get a grip and take a look at where it missed the mark in the past election, shawn, a lot of the folks are upset that the republican party did not factor in the real vibe with the youth vote, women and hispanics. >> look we lost but we did a lot of things well. our ground game was strong and did better in the battle ground states than in 2008 and president obama did worse than in 2008. fund raising was off of the chart. >> we got breaking news to alert to. the associate press is now reporting that thitate of florida was an obama win. florida topping rom no. 332 to 206. that's the way it stands. this had to take place over a period of days and so we know shawn florida goes in the obama colume. >> another nail in the coffin. part of the what we need
on the next 2-4 years or 2-4 weeks. john boehner says he's willing to work with the president to solve the problems facing us now. >> the president knows he and i have worked together. the election is over. now it's time to get to work. bill: governor, how you doing? i haven't heard you comment since the election. it's an honor to have you back. what's going on here. boehner is a deal maker. i'm the easiest guy in the world to get along with. >> john boehner and mitch mcconnell are professionals when it comes to understanding the art of the deal. we didn't win the elections, didn't get the senate. we have to accept the hand that's been dealt to us. if you don't get to take something off the table unless you put something on the table unless you have got a gun. we don't have a gun. we didn't get that in the election. so what we have got to understand and i'm hoping members of congress will follow the leader and members of the senate will follow their leader. you can't have every republican member of congress and member of the senate trying to create a side deal. that's disaster in the m
directly to the american people and sell his case. john boehner said this is his moment. his opportunity to leave. shannon: i would like to play a little bit more about what john boehner has said. and then i would like to play more about what brett said about this. but first, what john boehner said to diane sawyer. >> raising taxes is the wrong prescription. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable. frankly, it could not even pass the house. shannon: bret baier is the anchor of special reporting. what is your reaction? we understand that the president will invite congressional leaders over. >> we will also probably here from his senior adviser, david plouffe. the one thing that is interesting, if you look at the polls on the question of income tax rates, you have 47% that want to increase for those about 250,000. no increase for anyone tax increases, and 13%, increases for all. 47% 1,250,000 or above and 48% don't raise them at all or reason for everyone. so, you know, if you look at the exit polls, there is not really a definitive answer there. the republicans are going to say this is not t
with john boehner, the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. is he planning on sitting down with those two republican leaders any time soon? is the white house saying? >> reporter: there's nothing announced for a leaders meeting so far. but i am certain, wolf, that that will be coming because there's such important negotiations ahead. i'm told that the president's conversation with speaker boehner was courteous, it was brief. and i'm told that they also discussed the importance of keeping their public statements vague or general enough so that they leave themselves enough private negotiating room to get a deal done to avoid the fiscal cliff, wolf. >> that's probably smart too. thanks very much for that, jessica. let's dig a little bit deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. isn't his responsibility right now though to take the first step, offer a proposal to boehner, to mcconnell, to the republicans? we assume that the democrats, nancy pelosi would go along and harry reid would go along with the president. >> well, i think as jessica's saying, the president bel
to be back where we started on the edge of a fiscal cliff. president obama and house speaker john boehner haven't budged. yesterday we heard of talk of olive branches and reaching across the aisle. but this evening speaker bonner said this to abc news. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly couldn't even pass the house. i'm not sure it can pass the senate. >> he could be right about that. he's talking about raising tax rates. jessica yellin reminded us today that the white house has vowed to veto any bill that doesn't extend the bush tax cuts for families making $250,000, less than $250 a year. he's been very explicit. tax rates will be raised for people who make more than that amount of money. so how did the president respond to john boehner's line in the sand? well we haven't heard from him since he returned to washington yesterday. we were told though by the white house this evening he'll make a statement on the fiscal cliff tomorrow but as far as what we know right now the administration says the president has already laid out his plan. it's a plan he says would cut the defi
that obammal triangulate, moderate? >> i agree. >> sean: i am looking at john boehner tonight. i am thinking, he was the headline on abc world news, boehner exclusive, raising taxes, new revenue on the table. why is he caving when obama is the one who needs this deal more than anybody? why is he caving before it starts? >> he is caving because he knows there has to be a deal. the market was down 4 50 points in two days? >> that's the pressure on obama. >> but after an election that you lose, the american people want conciliation. center-right country doesn't mean-- >>> we there to go. >> i don't think we lost the election. we held the congress. >> same thing. >> sean: all of this process, we are in the same boat we were in before. >> $300 billion-- >>> $6 trillion in new obama debt. harry reid took his victory lap and delivered some disturbing remarks, he has ideas about limiting republicans' ability to oppose democratic initiatives in the senate. are we looking at serious abuse of power? will he be successful? will republicans hold the line? that's all coming up. how can you get back pain r
. for (cheers & applause) >> house speaker john boehner is also willing to be flexible. >> everything. from a revenue side and on the spending side has to be looked after. >> everything except tax hikes for the rich. that will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everybody says they want. >>pam: john boehner offered an alternative. >> it is clear that there are a lot of special tax hall loopholes. and it is also clear that there are several types of deductions deductions some of which makes sense some of which cannot. >> some of us have heard fiscal cliff but what does it really need? if what is that really mean catherine heenan. >> the fiscal cliff. >> the fiscal cliff. >> building fiscal cliff. >> congress created the fiscal cliff to force yourself to do with the national debt is the worst- case scenario in case there is no agreement on cutting spending and raising revenue. if there is no agreement by the end of the year there will be $55 billion a/with 10 percent from each program and another $55 billion from non-defense programs. air travel safety, food safety and medical payme
president barak obama and house speaker john boehner have both vowed that they will not let this happen. but is that even possible given today's decisive political climate? before we get into the discussion, let's first listen to what both men had to say. >> this is an opportunity for the president to lead. this is his moment. >> i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges, but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> arthel: let's talk about it now. matt is the former white house political director under president george w. bush. alexis is the executive director for the american values institute. good to see both of you. >> great to be here. >> arthel: very good. so let's say that each of you is going to broker this deal. tell me the concessions you would make and what would be the deal breakers. i'm going to go with you first, matt. >> okay. so i'm in the seat of power. i guess if i'm a republican, i want to make sure that if i'm going to negotiate a deal that i've got real concessions in terms of getting a comprehensive tax reform bill and we've got real concessions
. and secondly, when john boehner says the american people do not want tax increases, if you could remind folks that the house numbers for the democrats out way -- outweigh -- all of the people who won on the democratic side, they were outvoted by half of 1 million voters. guest: -- host: thank you. guest: i think they live in a parallel universe and are often ill informed on the news. but on the second point, john boehner always says the american people do not want anybody's taxes to go up. i do not know what he bases that on. here we go back to the polls again, but every survey or poll that i have seen among democrats and republicans, the american people think that the wealthiest have had a good free ride for 10 years and should go back to paying their fair share. i do not know where john boehner gets that. gets that.
, john boehner, said quote, everything on the revenue side and on the sp spending side has to be looked at but when it comes to specifics he put the ball firmly in barack obama's court. >> i don't want to box myself in or anyone else in. i think it is important for us to come to an dpe agreement with the president but this is his opportunity to lead. >> here to sort what call of this must mean, we have all angles covered, including from the white house ahead of this daily briefing. we have jessica yellin, athena jones and ali velshi in new york. let me begin with you. we were watching the president walk in the east room. i noticed standing ovation. the energy in the room. the president pulled out his own pen saying yes, i'm ready to sign the bill flanked by marylandle class americans. when it comes to middle-clax tax cuts it sounds like the president is sticking to his guns. >> his terms are fairly stark. he's willing to negotiate on entitlements, medicare, medicaid. the white house democrats consider that a huge give the democratic party but what he is not willing to negotiate on is ra
